Hold the person you love tightly on the dance floor and embrace that moment forever........hold them tightly while you are still young and let the music take you where you are meant to go! Life is a dance........we don't know how long we will be dancing!
Some of us have that special bond.....we call it our kindred spirit! The person who can make you laugh until you do pee on yourself, the person who can make you mad then happy again really quickly, the person who you miss so much when they are gone, the person who plays with you all day and you call" friend", the person who is .....your sister or brother!
Sleep until your heart is content, dream big dreams, cast away fears or monsters, rest peacefully and dream of new paths, bridges, mountains........dream of catching that big fish you are looking for, But first rest before casting the net....that big fish will find you soon!
Laugh! Laugh until your heart is content, laugh until your stomach hurts, laugh until you "pee on yourself", laugh until you can't breathe anymore! Laughing cleanses the soul! Making others laugh makes the soul much stronger! Snorting when you laugh makes a crowd laugh with you...so snort if you can! lol!
There is a first time for everything. The first time you fell in love, your first kiss, your first date, the first time you drove a car, your first and special prom etc.....When you are young, there is so much ahead to look forward to. Suddenly, before you know it, your life that you have lived is half full....Full of the last things you have done, not the first anymore! Everything is in the past. There are memories of good times, or even bad memories that cause lots of pain. We can look back, but never reopen that door again. Ahead of us are the first times; the times we look forward to. We suddenly find ourselves saying...."do you remember when"?? Yes, and then we refer to them as "the good ole days" ....the days when we were young, wild, and free..........those days were the "first and last times"!
DON'T FORGET TO BUILD SOMETHING IN LIFE TO LEAVE BEHIND.....WHETER IT IS A SANDCASTLE, A HOUSE, A BONFIRE, A LIFE TOGETHER, A LIFE APART, FRIENDSHIP, MARRIAGE, SPECIAL BONDS, SPECIAL MOMENTS, SAD MOMENTS, .....WE ARE CONSTANTLY BUILDING, CONSTANTLY WEAVING THOSE LITTLE WEBS AND THEY ARE ALL INTERTWINING.................BUILDING IS WHAT WE DO BEST......IT HELPS US GROW!
REMEMBER WHAT I SAID EARLIER....DON'T FORGET TO DANCE....DANCE UNTIL YOUR BONES HURT, DANCE UNTIL YOU FALL DOWN, DANCE UNTIL YOU HAVE NO MORE AIR TO BREATHE , AND DON'T FORGET TO LAUGH WHILE YOU ARE DANCING....AND IF NO ONE IS LAUGHING WITH YOU OR AT YOU........THEY ARE NOT HAVING FUN!
THERE IS NOTHING MORE PRECIOUS THAN A GRANDMA'S LOVE.....THIS IS A SPECIAL AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE! WHERE ELSE CAN YOU GO IN LIFE BUT TO GRANDMA'S HOUSE AND GET UNDIVIDED ATTENTION? WHERE ELSE CAN YOU FIND THAT COMFTY SOFT PLACE TO CUDDLE, WHERE ELSE IN LIFE CAN YOU FIND GOOD FOOD? THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE....AT GRANDMA'S HOUSE!
Look at me mom! I'm on a mission to catch a really big fish! I'll catch it and you fry it! .....That's what life is about....going out, and catching your fish! Somewhere in that murky water swims a fish that is just for you! Gage.....you're going to catch your fish when the time is right! Good luck my baby boy!
MY LIFE IS BEFORE MY EYES MOMMY! I JUST WANT TO JUMP IN ALL AT ONCE WITHOUT FEAR IN THIS WORLD! THERE IS AN ENTIRE OCEAN IN FRONT OF ME JUST WAITING FOR ME TO JUMP IN! THE BEST PART IS THAT THERE ARE A MILLION STARS ABOVE ME WANTING ME TO REACH UP HIGH AND CATCH THEM!
HELLO= THE SMILE, THE CHARM, THE BODY MOTIONS, THE EYES, THE AURA, SAYS IT ALL IN A PERSON.........HAVE YOU EVER MET SOMEONE AT LEAST ONCE IN YOUR LIFE AND YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO SAY HELLO, YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO SAY A WORD........THE HELLO, THE CONNECTION, THE WANTING TO KNOW MORE WAS JUST THERE? OR, IS IT THAT YOU WANTED TO RUN AWAY....BECAUSE YOU JUST KNEW THAT PERSON WAS JUST NO GOOD ????? WELL, HELLO TO YOU ALL AND I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A WONDERFUL DAY....I AM! PAY ATTENTION TO HELLO'S A LITTLE MORE.....YOU MIGHT FIND THAT CONNECTION, OR REALLY SEE THE NO GOOD PERSON THAT HE/SHE REALLY IS!
HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO SAY GOODBYE?
I'm sure you've said goodbye so many times in your life, only to know or think that you will see that person again, right around the corner, the next day at work, in your dreams, in your everyday life! Most goodbye's we tend to forget, it does not linger in our minds....but, some goodbyes leave a lasting imprint in our minds forever! Think back......Do you remember a face, a door closed behind you, that special person walking away with his/her back turned, your loved one breathing his/her last breath, your loved one lying in a coffin, someone you would have loved to say "i love you too", that little baby lying in your arms for one last time, or just that casual goodbye..........the one that says...i will see you tomorrow........and that tomorrow never comes! Hold that thought now for a moment..........and yes, next time you say goodbye...cherish it and make it last....It may be the last goodbye!
Remember yesterday, or the day before that? Before you know it, years will have gone by! Don't loose contact with the ones from yesterday...........they helped to mold the you that you are today! Yesterday is still full of dreams, promises and broken promises, memories, moments, forgotten loved ones, goals, surprises.....etc........Remember yesterday so it can remember you!
Whatever you do.......Don't forget to dance! Please don't be the one sitting in the chair or holding up the wall.....God gave us legs, feet, and arms for a reason.....Get out there and dance! Feel the music in your mind, body, and soul! Don't be that 80 year old man or woman in a wheelchair years from now wishing you would have danced to your favorite song, or held a lover so close in your arms out on the dance floor for everyone to see! Music is all around us....feel it and dance to it!
The gift of our memory is one of the greatest gifts of all, yet, it can also haunt us! My memories have been wonderful and I am living a wonderful life......thanks to the "God" up above! I have such good memories of childhood, friends, loved ones, deceased friends and family........Gosh life has been so sweet............And thanks "andre" for making everyday a little more sweeter!
Sometimes we have to sit back and relax.....and enjoy a few! Life doesn't happen all at once! Life gives us chances then we make our own choices.........it is in these choices that we travel our own roads, sidewalks, pathways etc..............
The people we meet in our lives are not by coincidence ............It is our faith, our pre-destiny! Cherish the moments with family, friends, or the last person you met today......These are our little messages, these are our little opportunites........these are our little moments in time!
Life ...........feelings, fears, wants, Drive, Hope, love, laughter, food, friends, relationships, sadness, joy, goodbye's, regrets, missed opportunities, death, excitement...........all of these bottled up into one! Life's a book, we are all a character playing in the big story of life! Remember to live life to the fullest.............never find yourself regretting or saying what if ?
This is andre's biological father and friend...Jimmy! A grandpa's love is like no other.........a father's love is like no other.....No matter how many miles apart and no matter how long it took for them to find one another.......That kind of love will never be replaced!
This was the first time Andre met his Biological siblings! Andre was adopted in 1975 by a wonderful cajun couple..........Now, he has met his biological mom and dad! This was his first reunion with his brothers and sisters in Lima Peru! I'm so happy that life has come around full circle for him......It is at times like these that I know that there is " A God Up Above"......................Thanks God!
Before you were born Adyson I knew you'd have a free spirit! It was like you and I knew each other before I even met you! You have so much energy and so much life....your energy just fills the room and your smile and eyes just attract everyone! Oh, and your temper can clear a room!
This is little Ethan........He is the proud one, the worry wart, the people pleaser! He also wears his heart on his sleeve like his dad! He loves changing his clothes like 50 times a day...........He dresses up and dresses down! He's a free spirit!
This is my husband, my friend, my soulmate.....my partner in crime! He is amazing to me! Look at those eyes......those eyes tell all!
